Today I have another "White on White"card I made as February's Guest Designer for Bizzy Becs, there's still plenty of time to enter the challenge and there's more inspiration being posted today as a mid-challenge reminder. I made this for my Mum and Dad's 61st Anniversary earlier this month... it's the month for Anniversaries, ours is on Saturday but they've been going a lot longer than us, lol.
The image is "Flossie Congrats" from Just Inklined, coloured with Copics. Lisa's little challenge Waste Not Wednesdays gets us to use Unused stamps (or unused stash now), I've had this image an embarrassingly long time, like soooo many, so I'm entering there.
My Mum has a little blue budgie that she adores, so I made sure the bird on Flossies hat is nice and blue - even though my Mum looks nothing like Flossie, lol. Now to be honest, as well as my Dad being her sweetheart, this little fella (called Cuddles, believe it or not!) has a large chunk of her heart; Fairy Fun Fridays challenge is Let Me Call You Sweetheart, so I'm entering there.
Of course, being a White on White card, the paper choice was pretty straightforward :-) The background of the card uses some yummy quilted satin card from Starfish Lane. I did the embossing on the other panel with Cuttlebugs Kimmi Luvs folder and punched the edge with Martha Stewart's Doily Heart border punch. All the matting uses a very fine corrugated silver foil board. Crafty Emma's Store challenge this time is to use three or more Layers, never a problem for me.... I'm in!
The ribbon and the small hearts are from my stash. Digital Tuesday wants us to Use Our Stash, so I'm entering the challenge. The inside of the card is finished with elements from the front, aren't they always, lol, I used more of the hearts from the front; they were coloured but I did deepen the colour a little to match my image with Copics. I didn't use the coloured ones on the front... white on white, remember ;-)
There are loads of challenges I think my card "fits"; Charisma Cardz has Anniversary, Crafty Calendar has Love and Marriage, Addicted to Stamps has Valentines/Love, Crafty Sentiments has Love, while Totally Gorjuss has Lurve... which is nearly the same just trendier :-) I know it fits the Allsorts Challenge because the theme is Free and Easy!!
Well that's it for my White on White Anniversary card, I've got to say that I've long avoided WoW, but it really was not difficult at all... and it does let the image "shine". Why not give it a go yourself over at Bizzy Becs, the prize is fabulous; in fact 2 prizes of Memory Box dies - I've got to get some, they're yummy - of course I can't win, but YOU can :-)
I've got a few cards in the pipeline, well in drafts on my dashboard, which is nearly the same, lol. I'll be back tomorrow with one of them, though it is my son's birthday today - his house for dinner and Black Forest Cake (mum made as requested, lol) and our Anniversary tomorrow (1 hour massage booked for the morning and Dinner at flash restaurant in the evening) so I'm not sure when these posts will magically do themselves, I've gotta say, from a time management perspective.... massage wins!! Until next time, Happy Crafting, Donna xx
